Sunshine, Gingham & Dallas LTK Wall Mural

How cute is the new liketoknow.it wall mural in uptown Dallas?! It’s right outside Standard Pour in Uptown if you want to stop by and take a photo while you’re in the area. I love how colorful it is :) I wanted to share this dress with y’all because I feel like everything about it screams Spring & Summer:: the cute peplum sleeve, the gingham, and even the classic gingham…

Bloglovin x BTD: Shop all Things Ruffles

  I shared my 8 favorite spring trends a few week ago, but I think the one I’m most excited about for the season (other than the major comeback of all things pink) is all the feminine ruffles I’ve been seeing everywhere. Have y’all noticed?! They’re totally a “thing” right now and I think ruffles and frilly details are for sure-skis here to stay – at least into summer! I’m…

How to Style a Slip Dress

Lately, I've been noticing slip dresses everywhere and have been falling more and more in love with them. So I was excited when Splendid wanted to work together for Spring and had one of them in their newest collection. My eyes went STRAIGHT to it and instantly I knew which piece I wanted to style for the collaboration. All that to say, I'm super stoked to have this navy slip dress for spring and can't wait to wear it all season long. No joke, I've already worn it 3x this week. Unlike wearing jeans or any top-and-bottom outfit, it's SUCH an easy throw on and easy to style different ways. So with them rising in popularity and me having just added one to my wardrobe, it only seemed fitting to talk about how to style a slip dress for today's blog post. I hope you enjoy! :)

What to Wear to a Baseball Game

With baseball season coming up, some of my friends have been throwing out dates to go to a game. Since I'm sure a lot of you are in the same boat (or are forced to go to games thanks to a dude in your life) I thought I'd share one of my favorite looks for a game - specifically baseball to stay seasonal! This "get up" is, in my humble opinion, is the perfect look for a game.

How to Make Your Office Attire Spring Friendly

As I'm trying to do more office wear content for you guys, I thought I'd channel some of my love and enthusiasm for Spring and putting together Spring-inspired outfits into some looks for the office. I've been getting a lot of feedback on all of this professional wear content (like here and here), so I'm glad y'all are getting use out of it! I obviously don't have a real office to go to each day, but I can absolutely put together something really cute that would work. Slash is it weird that sometimes I wish I could go into an office just to put professional looks together? I definitely miss the challenge of putting together an office-worthy look each day - not gonna lie!

The Silk Neck Tie

Hello friends! I'm back again today with the third and final way I've styled this simple striped tee this week! We started out this week with a classic yet stylish sleeveless trench that you could wear to the office, then talked about Parisian style (pairing the tee with a midi skirt), and lastly today I'm styling it with a silk neck tie and boyfriend jeans. I've had so much fun this week sharing these three looks and if y'all like this idea - of styling one key piece three ways - let me know and I'm happy to do more of it!

How to Dress Like a Parisian

Parisian girls seems to have it all - have y'all ever noticed that? The effortless, cool girl look that is just as sophisticated as it is laidback. And, they all seem totally confident in their attitude. We all covet this, but a lot of times when I try to copy it I can’t seem to shake the feeling that I’m still trying too hard. (You should have seen me getting ready for my Paris trip, lulz right there). But what I’ve learned about this 'Parisian girl' look - especially during my time in Paris - is that it’s all about comfort and confidence. It’s about mixing high with low, and rocking it because you know you look totally fab. After some serious stalking of Parisian style icons like Isabel Marant and Emmanuelle Alt, the editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris (so of course she has crazy good style), and all the street style, I’ve figured out what makes French-Girl style so timelessly...amazing!

Spring Work Wear Essential: The Sleeveless Trench

For my recent trip to Paris, I tried to be smart about how and what I brought with me. And if you saw, I shared some of packing tips with you last week! That being said, I spent some time brainstorming ways to make the most out of every item I packed in my suitcase all the while thinking of content ideas that I could share with y’all. With Parisian style staples on my mind, I was inspired to style a simple striped tee multiple ways. My original plan was to shoot the looks in Paris (obviously, since I brought and wore them!), but the rain sort of killed that plan. But I was so excited about the idea (one piece 3 ways) that I committed to shooting the looks right when I got back to Dallas, so I could share them with y'all.

Why I Love My City + Finding New Ways To Rediscover Yours

Have y’all ever stopped to think about how well you really know your city? It might sound silly (probably does), but lately, I’ve realized that while I obviously know Dallas well, I really only know the bubble that I move around in. Obviously that involves my neighborhood and all the places I go weekly (shops, restaurants, etc.), but even when I am trying something new, it’s usually within the same…

How to Incorporate Trends at Work

Hey y'all! Thanks for the comments regarding business casual attire on this post. I'm so freaking excited about all the business casual content I have coming your way! I used to work as a CPA and can remember the struggle of finding inspiration online (let alone figuring out what to wear to an interview UGH), and I'm really hoping to be that source for you guys.

Peasant Top and Flatforms

If you've been paying attention so far this spring, then you've probably noticed that "flatforms" are ALL the rage. I mean, they're literally everywhere. It's funny because I can remember back in 2014 (when I used to work for my mom) seeing them everywhere at Micam, which is the big Italian shoe trade show they hold a few times a year. And typically, Europe is a few seasons ahead of the U.S. so it makes sense that they'd be a huge hit about 2 years ago in the European markets. It's so funny how fashion works sometimes.

Fave Dallas Lunch Spot: Dive in Snyder Plaza

I've been wanting to put together a Dallas guide for months now, but just didn't ever set my mind to it or move it to the top of my ever-evolving to-do list. But after speaking to a friend coming to visit Dallas and asking for recommendations, I decided it was time to make my "Dallas to-do" happen.

My Balayage Hair Story

Believe it or not, I’m a hair-color newbie. I’ve only really been treating my hair and playing around with color for about a year and half. As a brunette, I never really felt the need to color my hair, as it seemed that only my blonde friends did that. And plus, I liked my dark hair! The idea of coloring my hair never even crossed my mind until I started braiding my hair more often. With all the same color hair (dark-ish brown), you couldn’t really see the details of my braid because it sort of all blended together or looked flat (for lack of a better term).

Sleeveless in Pink

I wasn’t kidding when I said I’ve been LIVING in these Tory Burch slip on flats – because Y’ALL, they’re SO stinkin’ comfortable and SUCH an easy throw on. Also, they’re the BEST color and go with pretty much everything you’d ever want to wear during Spring and Summer. I fell so in love with the color of this shirt that I actually got another top made in the same fabric…

Pencil Skirt Style From Day To Night

I’ve gotten a few emails from some of you asking for outfit tips/inspiration to take you from the office to happy hour or requesting similar day-to-night slash easy-to-transition outfit examples/ideas. And for the record, I LOVE getting these types of emails – it makes my job SO much more fun when I know that I’m (hopefully) answering a specific question or giving y’all what you want! So that’s just what I’m doing in…

Pleated Midi Skirt

Lately I’ve had a major soft spot for pleated midi skirts. Like, it’s bad y’all. I literally JUST purchased another one and not to mention the coral one I wore last year – remember?! But regardless of whether or not I should consider branching out, I’ve got yet another pleated midi skirt outfit for y’all today! But the good news is (!) that I’m trying something different (and a little more…

The Perfect White Tank

I’m excited to finally be posting this tank and cardigan duo! I’ve actually been holding onto these photos for a little over a week but haven’t gotten around to putting this photo together. Anyway, this tank is a summer MUST and perfect in so many ways. I love the tie-back and the fact that there’s a bit of a hi-low hem to it. And I also love this short-sleeved long…

How To Wear A Bodycon Dress

How To Wear a Bodycon Dress Bodycon dresses usually scare me and are always a little tricky. Maybe I’m being self conscious, but I feel like my figure doesn’t really work with them – or I have to be in a really good mood or find just the right cut to make it work. So I thought it would be an interesting spin on today’s blog post to talk about…
